I have a terrible dental phobia, so I looked for a sedation dentist. Dr. Rice was willing to schedule an appointment just to talk, and took me into his office for that rather than the regular rooms. On the first actual appointment, the nurse laid me back in the chair like she would any other patient. Dr. Rice came in, saw that I was VERY nervous, and said, "No, this isn't going to work." He sat my chair up, and explained everything he was planning on doing and talked me through my anxiety.

Dr Rice has amazing dental knowledge. He is extremely thorough with his attention to detail, and has handled every situation that I've had, better than any oral surgeons, or endodontists that I have gone to in the past. Dr. Rice goes the extra mile and puts in the work to come up with a plan to resolve your dental issues, but also gives you options based on your financial ability. I trust him more than any other dentist that I've been to. His staff is great, knowledgeable and compassionat.

HERE WE GO AGAIN, ALTHOUGH I HATE, LIKE ALMOST EVERYBODY BEING IN THE DENTISTS CHAIR I HAVE FINALLY FOUND A DOCTOR THAT IS A CARING, GENTLE AND FAR ABOVE SUPERIOR IN DENTAL KNOWLEDGE TO BRING MY PROBLEMS TO. HE'S A VERY MAN AND HE DOESN'T FORCE HIMSELF ON HIS PATIENTS, HE LISTENS TO HIS PATIENTS WISHES AND THEN WORKS WITH THEM TO DO THE BEST PROCEDURE AVAILABLE. THIS IS THE ONLY DENTIST I WOULD EVER TRUST TO GO TO, THANK YOU DR. RICE!
